It added, “Now, the political witch-hunting in Ebonyi State has shifted to political opponents in the state.

“The Labour Party Senatorial Candidate in Ebonyi South, Hon. Linus Okorie, was arrested by the governor’s foot soldiers called Ebube-Agu. After torturing him, they handed him over to the biased Nigeria police on the order of the governor.

“Another political opponent being marked for elimination is the APGA governorship candidate. He was attacked by the same Ebube-Agu security outfit of Governor Dave Umahi.

“MASSOB wonders why the governor of Ebonyi State uses his position of service the people of Ebonyi State bestowed on him to victimise the her citizens.

“MASSOB is advising Governor Umahi to release all the political prisoners of conscience in Ebonyi State. Ndigbo has suffered enough political subjections from the President Muhammadu Buhari-led APC federal government.”
